It was about SOA all along!

Leveraging Organizational Knowledge

After reading some recent articles on his blog I quickly realized I had to read his latest book about Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) titled: " Mashup Corporations. After only reading up to the end of the Introduction chapter, it suddenly stroke me: All my thoughts and ideas that initiated the articles on this blog since its creation in 2005 were calling for, relating to or assuming SOA! And the most amazing is that I never even mentioned SOA.

It was about SOA all along! Chapter 7

Leveraging Organizational Knowledge

[Continuation of my commented reading of Andy Mulholland's book: "Mashup Corporations. Chapter 7 is about the "typical” barriers to implementing SOA throughout an organization. The authors added this chapter in the 2nd edition following a suggestion by Avrami Tzur (VP of SOA at HP). I am sure Avrami was far from being the only one noticing the need for addressing this topic after reading the 1st edition of the book.

It was about SOA all along! Chapters 2 & 3

Leveraging Organizational Knowledge

from previous post about my commented reading of Andy Mulholland's book: "Mashup Corporations. When I state that my writings on this blog were about SOA all along, I mean that SOA is probably the best value-adding, customer-facing, tangible web-based implementation (that I know) of a knowledge leveraging strategy. Also, SOA is primarily concerned with online services on the Web but of course, not all transactions are online! [ cont.

Leveraging Organizational Knowledge

from previous post about my commented reading of Andy Mulholland's book: "Mashup Corporations. Here are my thoughts after reading chapter 1 of the book " Mashup Corporations. This book illustrates its arguments with the help of a tale of a fictitious company Vorpal going through the process of implementing SOA. Anyway, the authors' intentions were not initially to consider all the likely resistance to SOA adoption. [ cont.

Leveraging Organizational Knowledge

[Continuation of my commented reading of Andy Mulholland's book: "Mashup Corporations. Chapter 6 is about "Internal IT” or the effect the SOA transformation can/should have on the internal IT department/functions. With the help of a meeting with all the managers of the fictitious company Vorpal's IT department, it explains that a SOA does not only support the informal edges of the organisation but also the formal transactional hub.

[Continuation of my commented reading of Andy Mulholland's book: " Mashup Corporations. Chapter 4 is about how SOA can transform the relationships with your suppliers. I will quote from the book how a Vorpal supplier defines these SOA-driven relationships it has built with it's customers (p.57). The End of Business as Usual ”].

Leveraging Organizational Knowledge

[Continuation of my commented reading of Andy Mulholland's book: "Mashup Corporations. In my defence, it is probably the most important chapter of the book judging from the powerful messages it conveys. Once again, I'm not aware of many CxOs (let alone CEOs) with such an open-mind on new technologies and the courage to initiate and lead the drastic cultural change that a SOA demands. Such forward-looking leadership is indeed a must for a successful SOA implementation.
